76% of UK’s National Health Service PCs Not on Windows 10 Despite Looming Deadline

With less than half a year to go before support ends for Windows 7, about three-quarters of computers in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) are still running the OS. From a report: Just over one million computers in the NHS are still using Windows 7, according to a written answer from the Department of Health and Social Care. Having so many machines still running Windows 7 is a problem, according to Jo Platt MP, shadow cabinet office minister, as the end of extended support in January 2020 will mean no more fixes and patches without a costly custom-support deal. “With less than six months before Windows 7 support expires, it is deeply concerning that over a million NHS computers, over three quarters of the total NHS IT estate, are still using this operating system,” she says.
